loved tacos, and jack pinto who loved the new york giants. more throughout the morning, including gun control laws. first, john berman with developing information on fiscal cliff negotiations. >>> fiscal cliff talks haven't received much attention in recent days for good reason. but today is the two-week warning, with some good news to report. overnight, we learned president obama made an eye opening offer in talks with house speaker john boehner. under the new proposals, tax rates would go up on those making above $400,000. a big shift. the president has long campaigned on that number, starting at $250,000. the president also offering spending cuts worth $200 billion. for his part, speaker boehner who has all along refused to consider any raising in the tax rates has proposed tax rates for households making $1 million. so movement from both sides. cnn's dan lothian in washington with the latest on this. good morning, dan. >> good morning, john. the big question, can speaker boehner sell this proposal to house republicans? this is very dramatic, president obama had always dug in, sayi
was interesting. he ended his last speech at the economic club of new york, i believe, by saying if we could just get past what is ultimately a stupid debate. >> right. >> there's some momentum here. and quite frankly for a lot of us in the market, we'd like to move past this. >> do you expect, however, while we fight for this fiscal cliff baloney, do you expect the market selloff? >> sure. >> today notwithstanding, but it finished well off the lows today. >> as jackie talked about, it's up for the week. for the month. i think there's still a modest positive gain. what's interesting in this debate is the two previous times we've increased capital gains, nixon in 1970 and reagan, of course, with the tax reform act of '86. the december preceding the adjustment, the stock market was down. december 1969, december 1986. i don't think people have believed they wouldn't get a deal. when we talked about we're going over the cliff after the election, i think we were the only ones in some level, at least prominence in the ability of coming on your show. we were the only ones saying that could happen. >> ca
the debate on guns in this country. i want to bring in fareed zakaria from new york. fareed, you look at what happens in this country, we've got shootings in churches, malls, movie theater, other schools, even the attempted murder of congresswoman gabby giffords, and now sandy hook. when people look at what happens in our country, what do they make of it? what do they think of us? >> well, for everyone around the world, this issue of the united states is utterly mystifying because we know what works. the united states has 15 to 20 times as much gun homicide and gun suicide, by the way, a lot of it is suicide, than any advanced country in the world. what's different? do we have 15 times as many mentally disturbed people? highly unlikely. do we have 15 times more violent tv or video games? no. japan has lots of violent video games, and they actually have astonishingly low gun violence. the big difference is that we have these incredibly loose gun laws that make access to the kind of weapons you just showed, suzanne, very easy. the idea that people -- that anyone other than law enforcement offic

persuasions. new york city mayor michael bloomberg called the press conference a shameful evasion of the crisis facing our country. new jersey governor chris christie told reporters that armed guards won't make schools any safer. and senator-elect chris murphy of connecticut tweeted this earlier today. "walking out of another funeral, he was handed the nra transcript. the most revolting tone-deaf statement i've ever seen." indeed. right before wayne lapierre delivered his remarks, a gunman shot and killed three people in pennsylvania. one of the victims was a woman hanging up christmas decorations in a church. let's turn to virginia congressman jim moran. congressman, good to have you with us tonight. appreciate your time. always good to have you with us, jim, on this program. thank you. >> thank you, ed. >> what is -- what do you make of today's press conference, the reaction of the national rifle association? >> well, wayne lapierre works for the gun manufacturers. he really doesn't represent the majority of the members who are far more sane and responsible than the leadership i
: thank you. it is 60 miles east of fork city, in fairfax county, one of the richest counties in new york. it looks like something out of reader's digest. a community as immunity would seem to violence as any community in america. but today front and center the latest act of violence in america, the shooting, today, are the second biggest attack on an american educational institution since virginia tech in 2007 when 32 were killed. former homicide detective, rod, what do you make of this? >> what i can tell you and the viewers is what the police are doing. what we would do if an investigation, horrific investigation like this, trying to figure out what was the motive behind this suspect's actions. why the children? that is the question. the other question as investigators, where did he get the weapons in we will find that out the next day or two. where did he get the ammunition? why did he target this school? this is a very fluid investigation and there are several agencies right new. i got off the phone with the contact in connecticut that tells me that the forensic laboratory has been c
in 2008. joining us from new york, radika jones. her third year editing the person of the year issue. welcome. >> good morning. >> good morning. some might say, this is such a safe choice. >> you know, i just read someone say on twitter that a safe choice is usually a smart choice. we're thinking about the news of the year. and the year ahead. but we also are thinking about the legacy of the person of the year archive. we want a choice that will stand up to the test of time. we felt strongly that president obama would do that. >> some people might wonder, you know, and this name is even on your short list, malala y yousafzai. in the name of girls' education. why wasn't she person of the year? >> well, it was very important as you say for us to -- to tell her story in the person of the year issue. it's an incredibly compelling tale. she was targeted by the taliban after speaking out about girls' rights to education. she's become a huge role model around the world. and i think, you know, we'll see after she recovers how she uses this newfound power. she has a lot of powerful friends no
comparable area, new york to london, fax county to oxford, any comparable count, the united states with any comparable county, in europe or most parts of asia, you will find a tremendous difference between gun crimes and those gun crimes are not only associated with massive and unrestricted gun ownership but are caused by -- take another country, for example, israel, where obviously people need to have guns, there's terrorism. and there's almost no gun crime at all. in order to get a gun in israel, you have to have a 60-day waiting period. you have to take a mental health exam. you got to go to shooting ranges and pass a test. you can only get 50 bullets and that's a lifetime supply. there are enormous restrictions in that country that obviously needs a law. it's cultural, it's that part of the culture is caring more about winning over our children than >> what i find extraordinary is the callousness of politicians in america. i don't understand why some of them aren't prepared to literally stick their necks out and say, i've had enough of this. there are so few of them prepared to take any
legal analyst. he's joining us from new york. here's what the constitution, the second amendment says, you know this well. a well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. over the years, as you well know, jeffrey, this has gone through a lot of interpretations. most recently in 2008. >> very dramatically different interpretations. before 2008, for 100 years, that first clause, the so-called militia clause, was read by the supreme court and other courts to trump the right to keep and bear arms. that amendment was interpreted for decades as giving individuals no right to keep and bear arms. in 2008, that changed on a dime. the united states supreme court in a decision called hellar said that the second amendment gives individuals the right to keep and bear arms but what arms, where you get to keep them, that's still very much up for grabs. >> so what restricts are legal? >> well, let's start with what restricts we know are illegal. it is illegal now for a government, a local government or the
